    I agree with Mo. I got my marriage certificate less than 2 months later. Changed my DL and SS card. Have have no problems at all with anything.

      I guess it really just depends on your personal preference, and since FI doesn't currently have health insurance, two additional months is a long time. Technically it doesn't really make a difference either way, but it will give me peace of mind I'm sure :.) Besides, maybe when we have a bit too much to drink 10 years from now we will have a great story to tell!

          So question... If you do have a private, legal ceremony in the states and then have just the beautiful ceremony in the islands are you're resorts still charging you? I am getting married at the Grand Lido, Negril (which is turning into Breezes, Negril). I just found out they are changing hands so that throws a wrench into a lot of things. I guess I will have to maybe ask about this. Thanks for starting this thread.

            I think a lot of people are doing the same thing, on the Cancun thread I read, basically everyone was having a ceremony in the US before they went and then having their destination ceremony as well. I just have to say i LOVE your flowers..absolutely beautiful.

              Definetly check the reqiurements, but Im getting married at the RIU and there is still a cost, but its a bit cheaper.

It is definitely up to your personal preference and each couple has to do what makes them comfortable and works for them. I was just sharing my experience which was no trouble with the legal marriage in Jamaica thing (knock on wood).
              Thanks Mo! Its very helpful to hear from a past bride!

                We are currently in pre-marital counseling, and will have the pastor marry us before we leave. We will marry the Monday before we leave. I do not want to be bothered with translating my certificate. Also, My Mom and MILl want a pastor to marry us as opposed to someone we REALLy do not know.

                  Great idea Amma! And very meaningful.

                  I spoke with Chandlyn and she said that they only need a copy of the mariage license so keep that in mind ladies. I have to find out the turn around time for the certificate because FI will not be home until the 21st and we leave on the 2nd.
